Abstract

Intelligent traditional architecture in Iran functions as a sustainable system with the goal to achieve thermal comfort. Buildings in Iranian architecture have a strong connection with the surrounding buildings, making the city an integrated whole. Generally, it is said that it is not possible to remove any part of this system without affecting the whole system's performance. This research shows how removing some components of the system could affect the energy consumption of the whole. the question raised in our research and the answer obtained through this simulation is essential for controlling and optimizing interventions in historic cities. The case study is the Bibi-Roqayyeh traditional house in Yazd, Iran. First, the energy performance of the building under real conditions is simulated in Design-Builder software. Next, the energy performance of the building without the neighbors, the SABAT, and the traditional high Parapet are simulated. Overall, the simulation results show an increase in the total energy consumption of the main building after removing the selected components. The total energy consumption of the house is increased by 21.81% when all neighbors, the SABAT, and the old Parapet are removed. Each part affects the thermal comfort and energy consumption of the building, even if its primary function is not related to the thermal system.
